    Hello everyone, my name is Glenn and new to the site. Need to know kind of rods, bait, hooks, lb. test line. I have caught cats before, but now have boat and want the biguns. Best time to fish (of year), and morning or night, water temp. And anything that might be helpful that I may have left out. I am glad to be a part of the site. I will be at the Wewa tourny next month, hopefully.

    Welcome to the BOC, Glenn. The best advice I can give is to go to the library and you'll find all the information you're looking for in there and good fishing to you.

    You need to give more details, like species of catfish and lake or river you fish the most. Also read the old posts, there's a ton of info in them. And welcome to the BOC, the best and friendliest site you will find. grizzly

    Thanks for all the good info. I went today and got a few things. I already had some of what everyone said, but I wanted to try out some circles, also got some of Rusty's shad from Wally World. I have Penn and Abu Garcia, plus a large spinning reel, also a closed face cat combo from wally world, it is what I caught my 20+ on. Anyway, thanks again.
